A POLICE report has revealed how Gabby Petito was in hysterics after a physical fight with her fiancé just days before her disappearance.
Petito, the 22-year-old traveler who was reported missing on September 11, and her fiancé Brian Laundrie, who has been named by cops as a person of interest in the case, were reportedly stopped in their van in Moab, Utah, on August 12.

The full police report of the incident between Petito and Laundrie — which was shared on Wednesday — revealed that Petito was sitting in the van’s passenger seat “crying uncontrollably.”
Petito and Laundrie were stopped by cops after they were spotted driving 45mph in a 15mph area — and after driving off from an incident at the Moonflower Co-op in Moab, where a witness said he noticed Petitio hit Laundrie during a verbal fight.
The Moab City, Utah police report, obtained by The Sun, states: “At no point in my investigation did Gabrielle stop crying, breathing heavily, or compose a sentence without needing to wipe away tears.
It also notes: “There were no significant injuries reported and both agreed that Gabby suffers from serious anxiety, etc.
“It appeared that this incident was more accurately categorized as a mental/emotional health ‘break’ than a domestic assault.”
Additionally, it wasn’t reported that Laundrie struck Petitio, according to the police report.
“Both the male and the female reported they are in love and engaged to be married and desperately didn’t wish to see anyone charged with a crime,” the report states.

Two police reports were made on the August 12 incident and officer Daniel Scott revealed Laundrie and Petitio were “arguing over a phone.”
“Witness says he saw Gabby hitting Brian in the arm through the driver’s window as if Brian had locked her out,” the police report adds.

Now, officers have also said Laundrie is “hindering this investigation” by not cooperating with them.
Florida’s North Port Police Department said in a statement on Wednesday: “Brian Laundrie is a person of interest in this case.”
North Port Police Chief Todd Garrison added: “As a father, I can imagine the pain and suffering Gabby’s family is going through.
“We are pleading with anyone, including Brian, to share information with us on her whereabouts in the past few weeks.”
Garrison added: “The lack of information from Brian is hindering this investigation. The answers will eventually come out.
“We will help find Gabby and we will help find anyone who may be involved in her disappearance.”

Cops also confirmed in a statement on Wednesday that Laundrie returned to his parents’ house in Florida on September 1, almost two weeks before Petito’s family became concerned and reported her missing.
Petito, 22, and Laundrie, 23, were traveling together in a white van that was seized from his parents’ home on Saturday.
Local police asked for witnesses who may have seen the van in the previous weeks to contact them as Laundrie continues to refuse to speak to them.
They blasted him for “hindering” the investigation as potentially the last person to have seen Petito.
The couple lived together in Florida the past two years having met in high school in New York, her family said.
They had been documenting their “Van Life” travels on their social media accounts and set up a YouTube channel just three weeks ago to chronicle their adventures through national state parks.
